The Grapevine Public Library owns over 9500 reels of microfilmed census records. Federal census records are complete from 1850 to 1880. From 1900 to 1930 coverage varies. The collection also features miscellaneous rolls of non-federal census microfilm and microfiche, including Grapevine newspapers and township maps, Tarrant County tax rolls, Collin County marriage records, Texas birth, death, and probate birth indexes, Texas Confederate service records, Texas Ranger service records, Texas mortality schedules, Texas Internal Revenue assessment lists 1865-1866, federal land tract books for Oklahoma, and a few selected state censuses for Minnesota, Kansas, and Wisconsin.
The Genealogy Room has five microfilm reader/printers, two of which can be used to read and print from microfiche. We also have a separate microfiche reader/printer. Six computers, all connected to a single printer, are available for online and CD-ROM research. We also have a photocopier for reproducing letter- and legal-size copies. All copies are black and white and cost ten cents per page.
